Transformation of trade: new people, new markets
  
7th Coface Country Risk conference 2019
Sofia, 18 April 2019, Hilton hotel

 

 

The world is changing, the trade is being shaped. And there are some very important new trends in this sphere – it seems that it becomes easier, but there are processes that make it harder. New marketplaces require new people with new skills – maybe millennials? But there are other types of new people – some political leaders that are shaping the current situation globally.

What is actually the situation in the world trade? What are the risks and how do they reflect Bulgarian companies? What are the opportunities that the new marketplaces provide – e-commerce, centers of excellence? And how to manage the wave of the new talents in the sphere? Coface Country Risk conference 2019 aims to provide insights and answers to all those questions.
